Having a professional storyteller to your school is inspiring and educational. But when the teachers become
storytellers, the kids believe that they can do it too! The art of storytelling is a tool that once used will
become a regular part of every teacher's bag of tricks as they experience greater attention, increased interest,
and self-confidence on the part of their students. Storytelling helps teachers to meet the curriculum standard
requirements for many aspects of literature and drama in an integrated way.
In these workshops teachers gain the basic skills of learning stories without memorization. Teachers learn how
stories can be integrated into every aspect of the curriculum to excite, give meaning to information, and
develop inquisitive minds. They learn how to create a cooperative and safe environment through storysharing by
teacher and students. They learn to make use of stories from many sources including; personal and family
stories, multicultural folk and fairy tales, myth, legends, moral tales and created tales. Teachers learn how
to find appropriate stories for any subject area. Workshops run 2-20 hours.
